Another great book review by Christopher Purdy from WOSU in Columbus, OH.

The Hard Bargain is David Tucker’s valentine to his dad and a memoir of his own short-lived career in music.”

Many years ago, I recorded an interview for WOSU with soprano Licia Albanese. She was a favorite of Toscanini’s. Her career in opera went back to the 1930s. 

“Tenors?” she said. “The Tenor was Tucker! Tucker was the tenor. Everybody else, OK. But for me – Tucker!”
